Text resizing help


(Earle Allen) #1

Trying to put some text into CC but it keeps scaling to big for what I want.

I tried to do the letter in inkscape but when I import the svg it into CC it just shows a box. I still have to add a M & E also

Any help is greatly appreciated

You can import text as paths from Inkscape by converting it to paths first: Path | Object to Path — you can get a better idea of what Carbide Create will import by looking at it in outline mode first (View | Display Mode | Outline)

The best way to get consistently sized text in Carbide Create is to set it all in one line, then use a Boolean operation to convert it to geometry, see: https://docs.carbide3d.com/assembly/carbidecreate/video-tutorials/#boolean-operations
